Weight: The Myth of Atlas and Heracles - Jeanette Winterson Retelling of the myth of Atlas, with some Heracles and Prometeus and Hera and Zeus thrown in as well as Laika - the russian space dog. It is a book that had passages that I had to read out aloud cause of the poetry in them, and some rather embarrassing passages I skim-read fast.
It's a short book, a quick read, filled with guts, blood, semen, milk and stars.
